An updated version of the classic 1980 single was recorded for the upcoming documentary Still Working 9 to 5

TO CELEBRATE the upcoming release of the documentary Still Working 9 to 5, Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson have teamed up for a stirring rendition of Parton's beloved 1980 hit, "9 to 5." The documentary, out on September 16, revisits the iconic 9 to 5 sitcom to discuss its lasting influence on the amplification of women's issues and feminist ideals in mainstream media culture.

The Grammy Award-winning singers were assisted on the remastered track by documentary executive producer and songwriter Shane McAnally, songwriter Sasha Alex Sloan and producer King Henry. The song transforms the original country-tinged anthem into a low-key dream pop ballad that highlights the pain and hardships contained in Parton's lyrics.

"Nobody sings like Kelly Clarkson," Parton said in a statement about the track. "She brings any song to life. I love her voice on '9 to 5' and I'm so honored to have gotten to sing with her."

In a separate statement, Clarkson also expressed her excitement about working with the country music legend. “I'm so honored that Dolly asked me to reimagine this iconic '9 to 5' song with her! She is so talented, an inspiration to all women and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet,” she said. 

"I hope you all enjoy what we did, but even if you don't, remember that I got to sing a duet with the lovely Dolly Parton and now I have bragging rights until the end of time!"

Still Working 9 to 5 reunites the stars of the 1980s film, including Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dabney Coleman, and stars actress Rita Moreno, who starred in the TV series inspired by the film. The documentary, which premiered at SXSW in March, has already made waves at festivals, with Variety praising the film as "entertaining" and "provocative."

"Who knew 42 years later I'd still be working a 9 to 5," Parton said when her collaboration with Clarkson was announced last month. “I believed then and I believe now that everyone deserves to be paid fairly for their work... no matter who they are. I think this documentary shows that the fight goes on and that we all have to do our part to make things better for everyone."
